New YouTube Video Ad That Will Blow Your Mind

Obviously you need to check out this New YouTube Video we created for YouTube Video Marketing Ads


It is not easy being this creative, but somebody has to do it. We came up with this YouTube video for one specific purpose. That is to create YouTube Trueview ads.

Awhile back I blogged about the need to create a Video for YouTube specifically. You can not just take a commercial you have been using for TV and start running YouTube ads to it. That does not make any sense.

If you are going to dabble in YouTube ads you really need to create a video that is customized for YouTube. Trust me on this one. I am constantly running youtube ads and testing what works and what does not.

Did you notice how we used the skip button? Did you notice how we spoke to the audience and acknowledge that they were on YouTube. This stuff works.

People are tired of us bombarding them with our messages. For example…When was the last time you got a call from a salesman. How nice were you? Or when was the last time somebody texted you asking if they could call you? Now that is just weird.

Things are changing and you will want your video marketing to adapt to what people want.

So while you are here I wanted to show you a couple of other videos that we have created for YouTube.


This video was created to rank for the keyword “How basketball got started.” You will notice if you type that keyword into YouTube that is the first listing that will come up. There is a trick to this and you can read all about it by jumping over to

They will explain how to rank video and how you can dominate YouTube within your niche. This goes right back to creating the right type of video.

Good Luck

Blackboard Animation: A New And Exciting Way To Tell Your Story

Blackboard Animation: A New And Exciting Way To Tell Your Story

This article was originally posted on

I have been harping on my office to finish our new blackboard animation videoThey say that they have been busy, but I’m not buying it. After days of torture, I can finally say that our blackboard videos are ready for production. Check it out.

Blackboard Video Process

So, now that you are completely blown away with that video, how did we make it?  Well, breaking down the steps makes it sound pretty easy, but don’t be fooled, it takes a lot of time, effort, and talent to create a video, let alone one that is as good of quality as the Ydraw team makes.

Start with the script.  If you don’t know what you’re going to be saying, you don’t know what it is that needs to be drawn.  Here at Ydraw we have a whole crew of talented and professional writers who not only work for you, they work with you.  They will work tirelessly to revise  script after script to make sure you have the best possible version for your company or product.

Now, you’ll want a pro for the writing.  Why, you ask?  Well, because our writers don’t just write for their job, they write because they are passionate about it.  Here at Ydraw we only hire pros and our writers truly are pros of their trade.  You want quality for you product, don’t you?

Next you’ll need an artist.  You’ve probably heard it before but our artists at Ydraw have over 20 years in the business and have worked for companies like Disney, Marvel, and Cartoon Network.  Their creative genius is off the charts.  When creating a blackboard animation video, you will receive samples of the art, just like the script, so you are able to decide what you like and don’t like for your company or product.

Once again, you’ll want a pro for this.  I mean, this is the meat and potatoes of your video; you can’t afford to slack on this.  You want to keep the audience interested all the way through your video; professional artists know exactly what to include to keep the audience’s attention from swaying.

Now it’s time for production.  We set up our camera and let the artist get to work.  This process is recorded all in one sitting, and while the video only ends up being a few short minutes, the artist will sit for hours making sure that your drawings are the best quality.

After recording the art, you need a voiceover.  Make sure you get a professional for this.  Voice over artists get into the business because of one reason, they are good at voices.  They can keep the tone of the message and they know how to keep from “popping those Ps” or breathing into the microphone.  No one wants to hear that.

Finally, our amazing editors put it all together, making sure the voice over matches up with our video length, adding in Foley sounds or music to add dimension, and making sure all of our colors pop and our blacks and whites are  the perfect shade.

And that all folks!  That’s how we here at Ydraw created the first blackboard animation video.

Best Animation Videos By The King of Animation

Best Animation Videos By The King of Animation

Animation Video Decision Maker, King, Ruler, Leader, Law Changer, and, Protector of all things animation videos.

You are the king of your company. Your product/services your kingdom. The world wide web is full of your loyal subjects… It’s up to you to remind them just how loyal they are. And how, pray tell, do you do that??? Animation videos.

From Peasant To Prince of Animation

Ydraw’s humble origins began because I needed a whiteboard animation video for my business. I did my homework and knew that I wanted to, in a short amount of time, explain what my product did… as opposed to a flat, static photo of what it was. An animation explainer video was the perfect solution. A woven digital tapestry to accomplish this with movement, emotion and excitement.

I embarked on a crusade, searching high and low, (way back in 2011) for someone to produce an animated whiteboard video for me. There were only 2 companies providing these types of videos. I came upon an example video produced by RSA Animate, a UK whiteboard company. I was completely mesmerized. I knew this was going to be the biggest thing since sliced bread… buttered with viral marketing potential. I wanted it… wanted it bad! Only one thing stood between me and my video marketing desire… a vast, bottomless mote that surrounded the castle of creation… the pricetag! This damsel in distressed me out. How could anyone pay $50,000 for a simple animation video?

$20,000-$50,000 for a RSA animation video!?!?

That’s a bunch of monarchy malarkey!

Thus Ydraw was born.

“If I can’t buy an animated explainer video… I’ll make one! How hard can it be?”

It was horrendous. 3 long weeks of trial, error, error, and more error but eventually we nailed it down. That video put us on the map. Immediately everything seemed to fall into place. We partnered up with some insanely talented artists and turned to YouTube for education. It’s wild to think that Ydraw came about purely from tutorials viewed on the Internet, but that’s how it happened. We filled our brains with After Effects, Final Cut, Photoshop and more, all from the Internet. We Googled our way down the road to riches. It was like an online Oxford. We were not tainted by industry standards nor did we try to compete with the few others that previously existed in the industry. By developing our own system and taking charge of our kingdom, we have been able to create quality videos that others cannot touch. Within a couple of months we took the crown as the top whiteboard video company and have since produced hundreds of Animation Video Drawings for companies like Disney to Oracle, to Ford to Proctor & Gamble. It’s good to be King.

A case for Animation Videos.

Times have changed. Consumers are the same, but the way in which they receive information has changed. In the past T.V., Newspapers, and Magazines were the main source of marketing. If you wanted to tap into an audience, you used the tried and true methods of advertisement.

Today, T.V. is DVR’d to avoid commercials. Newspapers sit untouched behind gas station dispenser glass, yellowing from the sun while more and more readers turn to the internet for their breaking news. Catalogs and magazines and even yard sales are now predominantly found online.

Here at Ydraw, we embraced the altered path of social behavior, morphed into Animation Video Elvis and we have left the “20th Century Marketing” building.
Kings make their own rules. If a law doesn’t fit their plans… They alter it until they get the desired outcome. If your current modes of marketing/advertising aren’t producing a profit…

“Off With Their Heads!”

We live in an “instant gratification” society now.
Fast, Fast, Fast… If you don’t catch ‘em quick, they’re gone in a click.
The world has changed… your business must change with it!

Consider These Mind Blowing Video Facts:
• Over 800 million unique users visit YouTube each month.
• Over 4 billion hours of video are watched on YouTube each month.
• 72 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute.

• 100 million people take a social action on YouTube (likes, shares, comments, etc) every week.
• More than 50% of videos on YouTube have been rated or include comments from the community.
• Millions of videos are ‘favorited’ every day.

If you refuse to evolve with trends and social shifts in the market place, your kingdom and crops will wither and die. Put your product where the people are… the people are online!

Royal Animation Proclamation

Hear Ye, Hear Ye… By Royal decree, It Is Hereby Declared: Animation VIDEOS RULE!!!
Even with the extensive research behind the benefits of video marketing, many marketers are still hesitant to use animation video on a consistent basis. Some see the abandonment rates of live video and decide the return on investment (ROI) isn’t high enough. It’s a fair concern. Live video can lose 50% of its audience in 15 seconds, a blink of an uninterested eye. Like I said, we live in an instantly gratified world. Attention spans are short and most live videos creatively fall flat… (like the world) (Ha ha… just kidding) (The world is round… trust me.)

But this ain’t no fairy tale, this is tested truth backed by science! Imagine tripling your conversions with a Ydraw animated video… (Are you imagining? Can you see it?)

New Styles of Animation Videos | Little Twist to Whiteboard Animation Videos

Ydraw has been busy creating some New Styles of Animation Videos. We have been inventing and when that happens, their are two outcomes.

1. We bomb

2. We succeed

I think both  of these videos are a huge success. We now have a way to create drawing videos on any type of surface and still maintain the quality. That was always the hardest thing…maintaining the quality.

We are still trying to decide what to call these styles of videos, but for now we will call them cardboard animation and watercolor animation (genius).

I also added in a new animation video for Orthodontist. The animation video can be branded to any shop

Happy Birthday

1. Cardboard Animation Video

2. Watercolor Paint video (used paint brushes.)

3. New Orthodontist Video (this video can be branded with your name)

Now if those didn’t prove that we are just the coolest here at Ydraw, I’m not sure what will.  That cardboard one was just sort of fun and new and was almost just to brag that we can draw on anything.  But can we talk about that watercolor one for a minute?  Now our artists are so good that sometimes their drawings almost look like they were created electronically-yeah I’m not kidding.  Check out some of our whiteboard animations.  If that hand wasn’t there actually drawing what you’re seeing, you wouldn’t believe that some of these lines and shading wasn’t done with a computer.  So to see the watercolor animation video, well, it really shows the true talent of our artists.  There’s not faking that with a computer!  Ydraw prides itself on having some of the best people in the business, and we are here to help you create the best video for your product or company.

Let us know how we can help you today!

5 Government scandals you didn’t realize involved Whiteboard Animation

5 Government scandals you didn’t realize involved Whiteboard Animation

5 Government scandals you didn’t realize involved whiteboard animation


Because whiteboard animation is a relatively new internet sensation, it would make sense to blame video scribing for the trouble our country keeps getting into. You thought it was the Obama administration, didn’t you?

Here are 5 surprising ways in which whiteboard animation has played a hefty part in the latest US scandals:

1. NSA

Americans everywhere were outraged when news of the National Security Administration’s sifting through private emails and phone calls reached their ears. There are many rumors circulating about why the NSA felt the need to invade civilian privacy – but only one is true. And that is that James Clapper’s nephew’s girlfriend had told everyone at a family Christmas party how much more business her mother was able to generate by purchasing a whiteboard advertising video and hosting it online. Unfortunately for Clapper, and ultimately America, he had never heard of whiteboard video before and was simply trying to find a way to learn more. He figured the best way to do that was to listen up on millions of internet-surfing Americans to see if he could piece together bits of information and finally figure out what whiteboard explainer videos are all about.


2. IRS Scandal

Let’s not be hasty in blaming poor old Lois Lerner for the recent IRS party-targeting debacle. No, let’s do – because she can’t possibly blame her viewing of a whiteboard video wherein a little girl and her mother were having a tea party for a scandal like that. Mommy issues can be resolved with the help of a good therapist, and she definitely could have afforded one.


3. GSA Conference Fiasco

The lavish GSA conference held in Las Vegas is said to have excessively spent on ultra-fancy suits, gourmet dining and no doubt all the call girls $800,000+ will buy. But what the GSA is unwilling to admit is the hundreds of thousands of dollars spent actually went toward producing and viewing some of the most hilarious whiteboard animation videos known to man. Including the infamous Star Trek parody, which was so funny they laughed themselves sick – or maybe it was just the memory of the $50,187 that was spent on producing the video that upset their fragile stomachs. Either way, Martha Johnson had apparently developed an unhealthy obsession with explainer videos, and used the conference as a way to get her fellow employees hooked – thereby putting an end to any and all teasing and “whiteboard fetish” remarks around the office. I mean, what would you do in a situation like that?

Sadly, those hilarious whiteboard videos will never be seen by anyone else, because they were soon after destroyed by sheer embarrassment and shame. After all, that money could have paid the welfare of almost 900 Californians for a month!


4. Rising National Debt

Because Martha and President Obama have gotten together to play crazy eights every Tuesday night since his inauguration, it was only a matter of time before Barack developed a fascination with whiteboard animation, too. After billions of dollars were spent without reason Americans became suspicious. Some would have started questioning their own political moral codes if it hadn’t been for all the focus they put towards lobbying for Green Energy and Obamacare – which as it turns out are just excuses for him to develop more explainer videos – because producing whiteboard marketing videos is what he wants to do when he grows up.


5. Politicians Exempt from Personal Responsibility

Politicians across the nation say whiteboard videos are so engrossing that they can’t help but do whatever they are told while watching. A whiteboard video’s call to action is simply non-ignorable. Any self-exemption from responsibility by a politician can almost always be traced back to viewing a whiteboard marketing video, and statistics have shown this to likely be 100% true.


Well, now you know. America is on the path that it is because of whiteboard animation videos. Now, you can either be offended and turn to the streets to protest, or you can recognize the kind of great things whiteboard video can do for your business and jump on board the gravy train.

9 ways Whiteboard Animation can help a Total Sissy survive in Prison

9 ways Whiteboard Animation can help a Total Sissy survive in Prison

9 ways whiteboard animation can help a total sissy survive in prison


Listen, no one wants to end up with a prison sentence. But if you’re one of America’s stupidest unluckiest, you could face doing time, and you’ll need all the surviving-prison-tips you can stand to hear. Ydraw is here to help with a list of 9 ways whiteboard animation can help you, a total sissy, survive the big house:

1. Whiteboard videos are popping up throughout the nation’s prison yards as the preferred form of prison currency. By now everyone is aware that smoking kills, and inmates are becoming increasingly health conscious – making whiteboard videos the obvious choice over a pack of Newports.


 2. When you’re a youngblood, you automatically become a prime target. Old boys are always looking to take their troubles out on some greenie’s face, and others are just bad tempered and missing their girlfriends pretty badly lately. Playing a whiteboard video can be a great distraction from any promised poundings while you hurry and pump up in the weight room.


 3. Eventually, you’ll have to join one of those infamous prison gangs. If you’re having a hard time trying to decide which gang to affiliate yourself with, why not ask each gang to come up with a whiteboard video representing all the benefits of joining them? I promise, this will make your next ten to twenty years go by like a breeze.



4. At some point during your stay, you might find yourself in The Hole. The Hole, while very safe, can get pretty boring. Watching whiteboard videos is a great way to pass the time and help get your mind off the walls of the ten-foot-square cell you now call home.


 5. Prison rules are very different from life on the outside. You stare one second too long at someone and they’ll come after you. Either because they think you’re hostile toward them, or want to be more than just friends.  Keep your eyes occupied with a whiteboard video so you don’t accidentally stare at someone for longer than is acceptable.


6. Every prison inmate and/or guard loves a talker. If you’re having trouble explaining just what it was you were booked for, use a whiteboard animation video to explain in-depth the crime you committed – no wait, absolutely do not do this.




7. Did you realize you can use whiteboard videos to impress your gang leader into promoting you as his right-hand man?


 8. Once promoted, use your video to explain in easy to understand, eye-catching animation what kind of prison shank you will fashion to stab your enemies with if they mess with your new incarcerated family.





9. And last but certainly not least, once released from prison, a whiteboard video is useful for proving to others just how tough you are by depicting your most terrifying prison moments.


Good luck in there!
